My experience was horrible. The company arrived 40 minutes late. The 2 men worked at a snails pace trying to collect more money than needed by delaying time. The truck got lost on the way to the new location. I only had a 2 bedroom apartment and one bedroom had a toddler bed and a mini dresser. I had all items boxed and bagged the night before ready to be loaded. The men went past 3 hour and both locations where in Fort Worth. The workers left several items on the side walk at my new location and did not assemble my one and only bed or my dinette table. I had to help load and help unload the truck. I'm a small frame female. I took a half of day off work that turned into a full day off work without pay. The agreed to wave $39.50 for the half hour they went over past the 3 hour mark. Then after I wrote my review. The company called my cell phone harassing and threating to sue me for 5 hours worth of work plus the $39.50 they agreed to wave after many complaints from me during the 31/2 ordeal. When I only used them for 31/2 hours. The company has showed another form of being unprofessional. A ROYAL MESS.
Never USE THIS COMPANY! They harmed two bits of costly furniture and dropped a 200 lb dresser on my stairs, splitting the stair. The best part is they would prefer not to assume liability for their harm. Regardless i'm engaging attempting to document a case. On the off chance that you run with this company be arranged to need to purchase new furniture after your turn.
I put down a $500 store in the wake of being guaranteed I could scratch off my turn and recover my store. I crossed out my turn a couple of days after the fact and was advised they would credit my $500 to my card in a couple of days.
After a week and no credit I called again and was told they would deal with the credit without a moment's delay.
One more week and no credit. I called again and they let me know I somebody would get back to me the following day. Nobody called so I am debating the accuse of my charge card moving company.
As of January 1, 2000, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA)was establishedas its own separate administration within the U.S. Department of Transportation. This came about under the "Motor Carrier Safety Improvement Act of 1999".The FMCSAis basedin Washington, D.C., employing more than 1,000 people throughout all 50 States, including in the District of Columbia.Their staff dedicates themselves to the improvement of safety among commercial motor vehicles (CMV) and to saving lives.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) issues Hours of Service regulations.At the same time, they govern the working hours of anyone operating a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) in the United States.Such regulations apply to truck drivers, commercial and city bus drivers, and school bus drivers who operate CMVs. With these rules in place, the number of daily and weekly hours spent driving and workingis limited.The FMCSA regulates theminimumamount of time drivers must spend resting between driving shifts. In regards to intrastate commerce, the respective state's regulations apply.
The 1950's were quite different than the years to come.They were more likely tobe considered"Knights of the Road", if you will, for helping stranded travelers.In these times truck driverswere enviedandwere viewedas an opposition to the book "The Organization Man".Bestseller in 1956, author William H. Whyte's novel describes "the man in the gray flannel suit", who sat in an office every day.He's describing a typical office style job that is very structured with managers watching over everyone. Truck drivers represented the opposite of all these concepts. Popular trucking songs glorified the life of drivers as independent "wanderers".Yet, there were attempts to bring back the factory style efficiency, such as using tachnographs. Although most attempts resulted in little success. Driversroutinelysabotaged and discovered new ways to falsify the machine's records.
With the onset of trucking culture, truck drivers often became portrayed as protagonists in popular media.Author Shane Hamilton, who wrote "Trucking Country: The Road to America's Wal-Mart Economy", focuses on truck driving.He explores the history of trucking and while connecting it development in the trucking industry.It is important to note, as Hamilton discusses the trucking industry and how it helps the so-called big-box stores dominate the U.S. marketplace. Hamiltoncertainlytakes an interesting perspectivehistoricallyspeaking.
By the time 2006 came, there were over 26 million trucks on the United States roads, each hauling over 10 billion short tons of freight (9.1 billion long tons). This was representing almost 70% of the total volume of freight.When, as a driver or an automobile drivers, most automobile drivers arelargelyunfamiliar with large trucks.As as a result of these unaware truck drivers and their massive 18-wheeler'snumerousblind spots.The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has determined that 70% of fatal automobile/tractor trailer accident happen for a reason. That being the result of "unsafe actions of automobile drivers". People, as well as drivers, need to realize the dangers of such large trucks and pay more attention. Likewise for truck drivers as well.
